The goal of a proper warm-up for squats (in particular weighted back squats) is to make sure your body is completely prepared for the extra weight you’re about to put on your back. We do this by (1) opening the hips, (2) activating the muscles of the hips, legs, and core, (3) working into your ankles, and lastly (4) opening your chest and prepping your body with proper posture. This is a quick routine, and even though it might be longer than what you’re used to for a squat routine, you’re going to get so much more out of your squats as a result! Try it out, and see the difference.
